Estate agents get thinking as police release crime maps

As if estate agents were not already well and truly up that proverbial creek without a paddle, the London Metropolitan Police has made their lives even tougher.

A website mapping crime has been launched which allows citizens to key in a postcode and get details of the crimes committed there.

Anybody who has ever shopped for property in London will know the well established euphemism “it is an up and coming area”, which means “it is not currently a nice area”, but estate agents will really have their verbal gymnastics tested when trying to cast high violent crime statistics in a positive light.
